Control Your IoT Destiny

Focus on the business impact of IoT

IoT is moving beyond the hype

As the Internet of Things (IoT) enters a much more pragmatic and operational phase, IoT leaders need best practices and critical insights from peers across a wide swath of geographies, vertical markets and IoT use cases.

Focus on business value

CIOs and other IoT leaders must prioritize all potential IoT opportunities within the organization through the lens of business return — in terms of both absolute value and time to value. Gartner recommends the majority of IoT projects should target financial payback in less than one year. 

It is important as you embark on your IoT journey that, as you set your goals, you very clearly identify the business value rather than the technological challenges.

Establish leadership, design for success

IoT is the foundation of a digital business. We examine three challenges organizations must address early in their IoT transformation: developing stakeholder confidence, choosing the right technical strategy, and executing that strategy.


Include privacy in IoT strategy

IoT devices generate an unprecedented amount of data, often the sensitive personal type. Security and risk management leaders focusing on IoT must assure responsible use of that data, and distinguish between consumer and business risk.
